Day 1 Arrival in Sharm El Sheikh
Sharm El Sheikh is the most welcomed holiday resort by Red Sea in Egypt. 

If you come here from Cairo, the best way is by flight. Both Egypt Air and Nile Air provide several direct flights every day, with the duration of about an hour. Sharm El Sheikh airport is about 10 km (6 mi) away from the town and there is no public shuttle service. If you transfer by cab from the airport to the town, the fare is around EGP200 per cab. 

If you come here from Luxor, the best way is like this: first take a bus to Hurghada, taking 3.5 to 4 hours; then take a ferry to Sharm El Sheikh, taking 2.5 more hours. However, the ferry from Hurghada to Sharm El Sheikh is only available every Wednesday and Saturday; the ticket fare is about EGP1,100 (USD70) per person. 

As for hotel, we recommend you the 4-star Hotel Novotel. It is perfectly located at Naama Bay and equipped with private beach, 3 restaurants and 5 swimming pools. Around it, there are also many restaurants, casinos, markets and museums for you to explore.

Day 2 Scuba Diving Tour
Ras Mohammed National Park and Tiran Island are two best diving destinations in Sharm El Sheikh. You may book a scuba diving tour either from your hotel or local travel agencies. Around the Gold Beach, there are many travel agencies. Please note that you must have a PADI license to dive, otherwise you are only allowed to snorkel.

In the morning, the tour instructor will pick you up from your hotel and send you to the pier to take a boat to the places of diving. Usually, the tour includes at least 3 diving places and every diving lasts for about 30 minutes. Accompanied by the coach, you may dive as deep as 30 meters (100 feet). Lunch will be served on the boat. After that, you can either lie down on the deck to enjoy sunbathing, or jump into the sea to swim or snorkel. When the tour ends, the tour instructor will send you back to your hotel.

Day 3 Mount Moses & St. Catherine Monastery Tour or Enjoy Free Time at Hotel
Climbing the Mount Moses and visiting the St. Catherine Monastery are very popular tour arrangements in Sinai. For your convenience, you are advised to book a private tour or join a group tour. Regularly, the travel agency will arrange the guide to pick you up at 23:00 the day before (late evening of Day 02) and drive for 3 hours to reach Mount Moses, so you can start climbing at 02:00 and arrive at the mountain top at 04:00 to appreciate the sun rise. After, go down along another route and get to St. Catherine Monastery at the mountain foot at around 08:00. After visiting the monastery, you will be sent back to your hotel.

After returning, you may continue enjoying the charming Red Sea scenery, sunbathing at the private beach of the hotel, snorkeling in the clear sea, or hanging out in the nearby market.

At around 15:00 when it is not so hot, you may go to the desert for a tour. For a safe and happy trip, it's a nice choice to book a Desert Safari Tour in advance, which usually includes camel riding in the desert, visit to a Bedouin Village, and BBQ diner. The tour will last till night so you can appreciate the starry sky. If you are an adventurer, it is highly advised to attend a 2-hour Quad Biking Tour in the Sinai Desert, which can be a life-long memory.
